18th November 1943: red & yellow parachute flares

18 Thur. Very cold; some wintry sunshine in afternoon, otherwise dull. On foot to Morden; bought cats meat. Warning at 7.15 p.m. Two groups of red & yellow parachute flares some miles to S.E. and some distant firing. Some of our own fighters went over that way. All clear at 7.43 p.m. Len called; he had been to Tolworth to see Dad.
